K-State Alumni Membership No. 1 in Big 12 for 17th Consecutive Year

Kansas State University alumni have demonstrated again why they are regarded to be among the most loyal graduates in the nation. Based on information recently shared by Big 12 Conference universities, K-State ranked as No. 1 in the conference for the percentage of graduates who are members of their respective alumni associations. 

“This marks the 17th consecutive year that K-State has finished in the top position among Big 12 institutions,” said Kelly Law, director of membership and marketing for the K-State Alumni Association.

 She added that the membership of the Association is more than 41,000 alumni and represents more than 24 percent of K-State’s total living graduates.

“We are honored with the loyalty of our K-State family and recognize Kelly’s efforts, as director of membership, to ensure that the Association offers membership benefits that K-State alumni value,” said Amy Button Renz, Association president and CEO. “Last year also was a record year for K-State family attendance and support of more than 1,000 Association-sponsored events and programs held around the world.”           

K-State President Kirk Schulz said, "Earning this top ranking for 17 consecutive years clearly demonstrates that K-State alumni support is unmatched in the Big 12. A strong and growing alumni association is integral to becoming a top-50 public research university."

 Law said membership is not limited to K-State alumni. 

“We strive to retain this No. 1 ranking, and new members are always welcome, whether they are a graduate or simply a K-State fan," Law said.
